Chianti

Cities and Towns in Chianti

If you have ever believed in fairy-tales and landscapes where Kings and Queens ruled beautiful country-sides adorned with vineyards and picturesque gardens at every corner, the Chianti region is for you!  
 
Many people ask what is the "Chianti"?  There are no borders here, it is an un-spoken territory, in the Tuscan countryside between Siena and Florence, that has no precise name.  No name is necessary, because when you enter the borders here, you will know very clearly that you in Chianti when the names on signs like Radda - Greve - Panzano - Castellina - and many others you will see, all end with the word Chianti!  
 
The Chianti region comprises numerous towns, all once Medieval settlements, with castles, villas, old mills, fortifications and farmsteads. Among the popular events, the Palio horse race of Siena is perhaps the best known, although the numerous smaller scale wine Festivals, markets, and concerts organized in the castles should not be missed.
 
Chianti is an unspoilt land with a patchwork of meadows and fields where the famous blue-violet Iris grow wild, (the flower which was chosen as symbol of Florence and used for centuries in perfumes). Articles in Terracotta are still produced by local craftsmen.
 
Its natural environment is its fortune: Chianti is a splendid countryside which stretches from Florence to Siena, over great expanses of vineyards resting on the hillside from where the famous red wine is exported throughout the world.
 
The region's game dishes of wild boar, quail and pigeon accompanied by wild mushrooms are as famous as the area's cold meats, Chianina beef and Cinta Senese pork. The countryside is also characterized by its olive groves which produce a highly acclaimed oil.
